Oracle's Global Business Units (GBUs) provide powerful solutions to help solve the most complex business problems across a variety of industries including communications, construction and engineering, food and beverage, financial services and insurance, health sciences, hospitality, public sector, and retail.Whether powering clinical development for pharmaceutical companies, helping hotel chains streamline operations, or enabling retail stores anticipate demand and drive engagement, we’re working hard to provide solutions that help industry leaders grow, adapt, and innovate.
At Oracle, we’re committed to creating a state-of-the-art consumer-grade end user experience that will be /the/ factor that distinguishes our software from the competition.
Yes. We’re absolutely serious.
And we can’t do it without your help.
We need thoughtful, talented, multi-faceted user experience leaders who love empowering technology users with high quality interaction and visual design to bring their creative ideas and their hard work to join our team.
Here’s the kind of person we’re looking for.
*You thrive on working well with others. *You make the people around you better. You love to collaborate with designers, user researchers, engineers, product managers, executives, and inspire them to do their best.
*You’re a full stack user experience leader. *You’ve guided teams on how to apply user-centered design methods to interaction design, visual design and aesthetics, typography, motion, 3D, human factors, and more as tools in the UX designer’s toolkit.You have an informed point-of-view on modern, effective design processes and systems but know how to adapt when things don’t work out perfectly.
You get stuff done.
*You’re a fantastic storyteller. *You know that our products tell our customers a story through the user experience. You won’t rest until that story is a compelling one.
*You love rules and you know when to break them. *You think systemically because you know that creating a coherent experience requires it. But you know when the system needs to expand to accommodate a user’s varied conceptual model. And you know when to do something completely unique to create an arresting and product-defining moment in the product that makes users ooh and aah.
*You don’t already know everything, and you love to learn. *You’re inspired by helping users solve their problems. You love finding out you’re wrong. You consume large amounts of quantitative and qualitative data to constantly refine your assumptions.
And finally, you want to be part of creating dramatic and impactful change at a company that is committed to becoming a light unto others when it comes to user experience design.
You might have learned your craft via formal training or via on-the-job training. For most candidates, it’s a combination of both. As long as you’ve got experience and passion for leading and doing this work at the highest level, we’d love to talk to you and see a portfolio of the work you’re most proud of.
What will you do as the UX Manager of Oracle’s State and Local Design Team?
You will be responsible for a team of designers that dives deep into several of Oracle’s GBU products to deliver innovative experiences tailored to specific industry user needs.
You will partner closely with Product Management to understand the customers who use these products, empathize with them, and imagine creative ways we can make their work lives dramatically better.
You will partner closely with fellow designers to innovate by designing coherent, seamless, and emotionally resonant, state-of-the-art user experiences for our users.
You will partner closely with Engineering to take your designs and turn them into reality.
You will partner closely with your colleagues in user research to get customer feedback on your designs, find out where you’ve improved their lives, and where you have more work to do.
You will learn, grow, and be challenged.
And, if we’re being honest (and we are), you will sometimes make tough compromises, or find things take longer than you want them to, or need to work extra hard to convince a colleague of your position, or not get your way.
And sometimes, you will get frustrated that Oracle is still growing its design culture. But then you’ll remember, that you’re here to be a founding member of that design culture and help turn Oracle into the place you love to work and have one of the best professional experiences of your life.
If you’re interested, please get in touch. We’d love to hear from you.
/At Oracle, we don’t just value differences—we celebrate them. We’re committed to creating a workplace where all kinds of people work together. We believe innovation starts with diversity and inclusion./
